also, if the plan was to kill the group one by one, why didn't one of the brothers shoot lee while they were at the camp? surely it's more likely to be killed by bandits while at their camp than go through accidental double electrocution.
I think that zapping them with the electric fence shows the odd mentality that the brothers have. Also, it would have been more convenient for the brothers to sneak up on Lee's group and kill them, but they said that they prefer "fresh meat", which refers to them keeping their bodies alive, or the meat gets "tainted".
